What: Carolina Hurricanes vs. Chicago Blackhawks
When 7:00 P.M.
Where: PNC Arena (Raleigh, North Carolina)

The Hurricanes are at home tonight facing the defending Stanley Cup Champions tonight. While Chicago has a great team, Carolina is 7-1-0 in their last eight games against defending Stanley Cup Champions.

The Hurricanes are currently second in the Metropolitan division (their current playoff matchup would be against the Islanders), and with only six games over the next 17 days (three over the next 12 days); every point is crucial to keeping one of the top three spots in the Metropolitan division.

As far as injuries go, Tim Gleason and Anton Khudobin should both be good to go in two to three weeks while Elias Lindholm is day-to-day and could return within the next three days.

The Canes will go with the following line-up tonight...

Alexander Semin - Eric Staal - Tuomo Ruutu
Nathan Gerbe - Jordan Staal - Jiri Tlusty
Jeff Skinner - Riley Nash - Patrick Dwyer
Drayson Bowman - Brett Sutter - Radek Dvorak

Justin Faulk - Andrej Sekera
Jay Harrison - Ryan Murphy
Ron Hainsey - Brett Bellemore

Cam Ward
Justin Peters

Scratches Kevin Westgarth, Mike Komisarek
Injured: Anton Khudobin, Elias Lindholm, Tim Gleason, Joni Pitkanen (season ending IR)

I'm really perplexed by the fact that we can turn it off and on at any time of the game.

We've dominated the second period.

    • And yes, Smitty would've been absolutely hell on wheels in MMA.
    • Smitty would've tried to have literally killed Talib for that poo he pulled on Philly in the SB.
    • SSDs are mostly good if you need fast read or write speeds, eg watching or editing large files like raw audio or video.  They won't help much for standard stuff, and are one of the larger premium price points.  They are very nice in that they produce less heat and are more stable, no spinning discs, but you won't notice much of a performance gain for general use. The biggest bang for your buck is RAM.  I always get as much RAM as I can afford.  That will improve performance of everything on the system.  Upgrade CPU/cores next, for overall performance. Again, depending on what you're doing, the graphics card can make as big a difference as anything else.  That's mostly for gaming and video playing/editing, however.  But with more and more video streaming going on, the graphics card can be very helpful to improve performance and quality.
